Before anything, here’s a disclaimer: last year, I kind of followed the auspicious date to start work after Chinese New Year and guess what?
I’m still working.
I didn’t win any 4D or Toto (partly because I didn’t buy any). Guess it’s safe to say that this is merely a guide—or simply something that creates some sort of placebo effect, because the only way to huat in 2018 is actually hard work.
Now that, that’s out of the way, what are the auspicious dates to start work after Chinese New Year in 2018?
Seeing that most of my colleagues haven’t taken any leave yet, it might not be too late to apply for your post-CNY leave now.
According to Dato’ Joey Yap, the founder of the Mastery Academy of Chinese Metaphysics, who is also the author of 162 books and Chief Consultant of the Joey Yap Consulting Group, there are specific dates (and time, to be exact) for people to start work for different Chinese Zodiac signs.
I’m not sure about you, but over here at Goody Feed, we get a day’s off-in-lieu since a day of CNY falls on a Saturday, which we can use it within a month. That means we can choose to start work on either 19 or 20—which is perfect if you would read on.
Joey’s guide to 2018, which you can download here, suggests these dates to start work:
19 February 2018 (Monday) at 9:30 a.m. for all Chinese Zodiac Signs except Rabbit
20 February 2018 (Tuesday) at 9:30 a.m. for all Chinese Zodiac Signs except Ox
23 February 2018 (Friday) at 9:30 a.m. for all Chinese Zodiac Signs except Dragon
Perfect for many, since we won’t even need to touch our annual leave, eh?
Now, the problem is of course the timing: how the heck can we start work at 9:30 a.m. when we’re supposed to start work at 8:00 a.m. (at least for me)?
Here’s the ticket: the guide indicates that you should “recommence work” at these dates and timings, so you can nua (relax) until 9:30 a.m. before you begin any real work.
Kind of like how people only “officially move in” to a new house only at auspicious dates.
Just don’t say you learn this from us.
And if you’re going to apply your annual leave, here’s one video we’ve done about annual leave in Singapore which might interest you:
Oh, just to repeat this point: this is merely a guide. I do know the best way to have a huat dog year though, and that is to set goals and work hard.
